    Default Arecibo in Puerto Rico -high res overlay discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Arecibo in Puerto Rico -high res overlay

    Those who see the Arecibo radio telescope for the first time are astounded by the enormousness of the reflecting surface, or radio mirror. The huge "dish" is 305 m (1000 feet) in diameter, 167 feet deep, and covers an area of about twenty acres. The surface is made of almost 40,000 perforated aluminum panels, each measuring about 3 feet by 6 feet, supported by a network of steel cables strung across the underlying karst sinkhole. It is a spherical (not parabolic) reflector

    Seems the original Link is down. Edit the downloaded original file and change the URL-Link with this one:

    http://www.signale.de/arecibo/pics/A...bservatory.jpg

    It should work now.
